Air-Fried Shrimp with Yum Yum Sauce

makes 2 servings


We can all do with a little bit of comfort right now, but definitely not the guilt. This air fried shrimp is a healthier makeover of fried shrimp that also happens to be gluten-free. I also rehabbed the recipe for some amazing Yum Yum Dipping Sauce.

Air-Fried Shrimp with Yum Yum Sauce


  • Whisk the eggs in a small bowl, then place the flour in another. Dip the shrimp into the egg, then coat with the flour, + place on the lined air fry sheet. Spray liberally with cooking oil on both sides. (see the video above!)

To Air Fry

  • Place into the air-fryer, set to 350 degrees + desired crispiness, + cook on side one, repeat on side 2. Roughly 6-8 minutes/side.

For the Sauce

  • Simply blend all of the ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.
